Amazon has been busy making improvements to its Cloud Player. The company recently announced the ability to scan and match music and now it has made the service available on Sonos. So now if you store your music through Amazon, you can register and start playing your collection anywhere in the house, directly from your Sonos system.
To get started, you'll need a five-digit code from your Sonos controller, which will allow you to register through Amazon.com. Once it's registered, to find your collection on your controller, just select 'music' and then 'Amazon Cloud Player'.
There is a Sonos app available for the Kindle Fire and for other Android devices from the Google Play Store. Full press release after the break.
